    Hi,
    This problem is caused by FAT file format. The solution to this error is to convert the file format to NTFS.
    Click the Start button
    Click All Programs
    Click Accessories
    Right click Command Prompt
    Click Run as Administrator
    Enter the command, convert /fs:ntfs /nosecurity (drive should be the drive letter of your external hard drive, for example convert F: /fs:ntfs /nosecurity )

    Hope above information can help you.
